    Does this mean Apple are making some new old Nano's? Or do they have old ones lying around?

    Bit of a misleading topic title - they are only recalling 1st Gen iPod Nanos.

    The first two words of the quoted article are "First generation".

    I suspect that what they will do is work it on a rolling basis and get some back from customers, recondition them and then send them out to other customers...and the cycle continues.

    So the fact that an ipod may explode in someones pocket didnt come out in the testing phase? says a lot for thier QC. glad i dont own any apple products i would hate to spontaniously combust in the high street.

    I'd be more concerned about the OP's superfluous apostrophe in the topic title ;)

    I suspect that most will be recycled with some being refurbed and sold off via ebay and the like for the inflated price customary amongst apple products

    Apple kit that is almost 7 years old...

    Most will be at the bottom of a drawer somewhere long since replaced.
